We can also look at disputes that arise over the terms of the agreements. In accordance with the Fair Work Act 2009, agreements will continue to be executed after their nominal expiry date until they are replaced or terminated by an application to the Commission. The provisions of the Fair Work (Transitional Commissions and Consequential Amendments) Act 2009 remain transitional instruments based on agreements. Fair Work Commission publishes company agreements on this website. Information and instruments are available on the Commission`s website to support the conclusion of an agreement. Visit an agreement for more details. The procedures for authorising company agreements vary depending on the type of agreement. Registered agreements are valid until terminated or issued. A company agreement may be concluded between one or more employers and two or more workers with their elected representatives. If a job has a registered agreement, the bonus does not apply. However, note: for multi-enterprise applications or if you are about to start a round of branch negotiations that results in the submission of a large number of contract authorization requests. The communication to the Commission prior to the submission of the application will help the Commission to process applications in a timely and coordinated manner. The Fair Work Commission can also help employers and workers negotiate with their New Approaches programme.
